Back in April Jonny and Lynnette attended the second CCN (Club Awards) Awards show,
this year held at Drax S&S Club, where some of Britain's finest muscians and entertainers
all gathered to hear the results of the country music awards.
Jonny and Lynnette were nominated for both 'Duo of the year' and
'female vocalist of the year' awards and they are very proud to announce
that Lynnette Marie was awarded 'female vocalist of the year 2017'.
Thank you to all of you who took the time to put pen to paper and vote
for Jonny & Lynnette in these awards, it is the best feeling to be nominated
and short listed for any award but to go on and win is such a
privilege and amazing feeling.
This month we saw the 32nd Golden Buckle CMC festival held at Walesby and what a festival it was!
Over nine days we had an amazing line up of artists from all over the UK including guest artists from Ireland and the USA with the fabulous Joni Harms headlining the bank holiday monday show.
Included in the line up, with their debut performance was Jonny & Lynnettes Rocky Road Ramblers.
The interest was so great that they have started taking bookings and are looking forward to playing their brand of music that favours the lively BR549 and Hank Williams to the sweet style of Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson.
Keep an eye out for this band as they play and live by their motto 'have a good time all the time!' and they certainly intend to do just that.

September was the month for the annual Cross Country & NAM awards and this year we were nominated in three different categories, Jonny & Lynnette duo were among the top five shortlisted for Duo of the year, Lynnette Marie made the Female artist of the year catergory and
The Rocky Road Ramblers were thrilled to be among the finalists for the Newcomer award.
We are so proud to have made the short list for all of these catergories and were over the moon to be awarded Duo of the year 2018.
Thank you to all who took the time to vote for us and who come along to the clubs,
holiday weekends, festivals and show us all such amazing support.

It's all about the award shows this time of year and November was no exception. This time it was the BCMA awards (British Country Music Awards) held in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
These awards celebrate some of the biggest names in modern country and americana music who can often be heard played on Bob Harris's BBC Radio 2 shows, so to gain a nomination in the Peoples Choice catergory for 'Album of the year' with our debut album 'In the jailhouse now' by our band the Rocky Road Ramblers was amazing to say the least.
We lost out to The Shires who are HUGE!..and can be seen playing arenas supporting stars such as Little big town, The Corrs and Shania Twain to name just a few.
Trust me when I say that none of us ever thought we would see our album nominated along side groups like The Shires so again a thousand thank you's for making our musical journey so awsome.
This month is kind of a crazy one as the four of us, The Rocky Road Ramblers, are heading to Memphis, Tennessee for a recording session at none other than the legendary Sun Studios.
The 1950's saw music history being made at this iconic studio where Sam Phillips recorded legends like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley to name just a few and the sound of rock and roll and rockabilly was born.
The main reason for going is simply to enjoy ourselves but to be able to record in the same room as some of our heros will be a dream come true and if we do record enough material to produce our second album from, well then that is just a bonus!
So watch this space folks, we will keep you posted on that one.
